Name: Flumen Virus
Symptoms: The Flumen Virus is a widespread infection, which was encountered by a routine expansion team of Umbruke who fell victim to the infection upon coming into contact with it. Notable cases of incidents involving the virus include a parasitic growth of fungal matter, hallucination, vomiting, and bloodshot eyes. Around 4 to 5 hours after infection, the victim will begin bleeding from the ears, eyes, and nose. Spores begin to sprout to spread the infection, which enters into other hosts by their orifices.
Interestingly, the virus seems to carry the characteristics of the previous host, adapting to the new host by morphing it into a hybrid creature. It was unknown whether it was a biological weapon engineering by an unknown race or if it had possibly developed on Glomerorum, the planet it was originally encountered on.
Those who are infected by it begin growing abnormal fungal growth, including spikes, and prehensile arms. In the process of slowly taking over the body, the virus causes genetic mutations to occur in the hosts body.
Currently: Currently, the virus is being studied and contained by the Umbruke, whom are working in a group-effort against the bacterium. Glomerorum has been put under long-term quarantine until a vaccine can be developed to cure it.
It is one of the most feared viruses in the galaxy, primarily in the Tenebrarum arm.
